Im 41 years old and want to get in shape. Perhaps I want to start at a bodybuilding contest, because the next 3 months I have a lot of time.

My last contest was in 2007.

The last years I got to fat and have to lose about 24 pounds. What do you think: It is possible to get in contest shape in only 10 weeks?

I can train twice a day: cardio and strength training. Diet will be on top.

Has anybody reference values or experience?

24lbs in 10 weeks can be done. I dropped 50 in 20 weeks and was in good enough shape to be respectable on stage.

I lost my last 10kg in 8 weeks. From 15st 10lbs to 13st 12lbs.

But it's hard to get properly stage cut like that. As I said, I was stage lean, but not winning lean. I was bigger than most of my category, had legs, could pose well enough and had a shape to me, and still came 6th to smaller, less polished bodybuilders because I just wasn't lean enough. And that's a valid reason not to beat them!

It got to a stage where my body didn't want to lose any more fat. Any weight I lost in the last week was lean tissue.

I would have needed to be leaner for longer or dropped a lot slower. But time was what it was and I was very pleased with what I did. It was a feat to lose so much to get that lean first time round and I'm pleased.

Always worth a punt and better than not, but definitely not the best way to diet for a show. Unless it's the only way in the circumstances.
